I’ve always had a soft spot for those fairy-tale Disney movies I watched growing up. As a little girl, Disney classics defined what a fairy tale was, complete with princesses and a happily ever after at the end. I’m so glad that Disney is about to release The Pirate Fairy on DVD so little girls of this generation can have the same experience.
On April 1st, The Pirate Fairy DVD will be released at Walmart and as a free gift the Pixie Hollow Bake Off DVD with 10 animated shorts will be included. Perfect gift for a little girl! The Bake Off DVD follows Tinkerbell as she challenges other fairies in Pixie Hollow. Even Giada de Laurentiis makes a cameo as the head baking fairy.
So since I am a lover of cupcakes and I’m supposed to be achieving a healthier lifestyle these days, I decided to make a healthy batch of cupcakes. Just for fun, I thought I’d try making some edible glitter as blue pixie dust because part of the storyline in the movie involves blue pixie dust.
It’s very simple – mix up a regular box of cake mix (vanilla or whatever you prefer), 1/3 cup of applesauce (instead of butter or oil) and 3 eggs plus 1 tablespoon of water with a hand mixer until it’s light and fluffy. Spoon it into cupcakes liners and pop it in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes at 350F. I didn’t notice much taste difference when I licked the bowl – it’s still my favorite part of baking!
Edible glitter was simple to make, but it didn’t turn out quite as sparkly as I expected it. First, in a small bowl, mix 1/2 cup of sugar with a few drops of blue food coloring and work it through your fingers to distribute the color. Add the color as desired, and once you are finished spread it onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake it at 180F for 5-10 minutes.
Once my cupcakes cooled off, I frosted them with fat free frozen whipped topping and dunked them in the blue fairy dust. I may never make a cupcake the same way again – these are so good and sooo much better for you! #ProtectPixieHollow
